a bounce after the election, they thought wrong. president obama's second term victory was greeted with stocks worst day of the year. the dow fell 300 points on wednesday and triple-digits on thursday and and the markets were mixed on friday. bond rating agency moody's reiterated the possibility of a downgrade if america goes over the fiscal cliff but said it would wa wait after budget negotiations. a downgrade will make it more expensive for the united states to borrow money. >>> superstorm sandy would provide an economic boost to the auto industry. 250,000 new and used cars may have been ruined by sandy. a loss that could eventually lead to a spike in auto sales. overall consumer borrowing expanded in september but at a slower pace than the previous month. a sign buyers may be pulling back on credit card purchases. this is an important point because consumer and consumer spending make up two-thirds of the u.s. economy. >>> what will a second term for president obama mean to the economy? will we see compromise or fall over the fiscal cliff? joining me are two former top presidenti

. but when you look at the entire election and i look at just sort of -- i was on the road with obama for the last -- feels like the last three months, particularly the last couple of weeks where it was kind of like on the -- felt like the baton death march or something like that. and this one moment that just stays in my mind, we're all so prepared for this thing to go possibly into recounts, be up all night. understand when you guys called the election -- and when you guys called the election, i was standing in chicago among all of his supports. nobody saw you call ohio but all of a sudden there it is up there and it says barack obama re-elected. chris: it was like 11:20 eastern. >> yeah and it was so instantaneous and the place went berserk. chris: and when mitt romney came out, and he's not a professional politician, but he came out and gave the most professional concession speech i've heard in years. that to me brought clarity. >> he's a first class act. let's face it. mitt romney was always -- i think after that first debate and he picked up the momentum, he was convinced and ha

low drama of the election night, fox news has projected obama has won ohio, with it another four years, and with it comes an objection from a fox news panel, the most prominent of the fox news commentator. >> you've about got to be careful about calling things when you have 991 votes separating the two candidates. even if they have made it on the basis of select precincts, i'd be very cautious about intruding into the process. >> well, folks -- >> thanks. >> so maybe not so fast. >> thanks. thanks a lot. thank you. great to have you guys here. >> that's awkward. >> that's awkward says megan kelly. so when karl rove says that as obviously wrong as it turns out, does it seem to you that he's speaking as a guy with an independent judgment or a guy who's acting as a republican party surrogate? >> that's the issue. awkward. awkward long before election night when networks have people on their programs who are also actors. they're no longer just observers. that's also true with paul at cnn. it's not just karl. but karl's running the, you know, multi-- hundreds of millions of dollars in adver

this election mibet go and then to see it go in one simple clear direction. obama's direction. >> and it's a big deal for him. and the interesting question is how is he going to use the power of the presidency? david wrote a really important column about linden johnson saying, what's the presidency for? doing big things. he made -- obama may have that opportunity. he's got to fix the financial house of the federal government first and that is boring, tedious. chris: let's stay with this lofty thing. didn't he in his first term treybig lofty things, health care, don't ask, don't tell. >> he did. he got some of they have accomplished and some of them not so. but when you look at the entire election and i look at just sort of -- i was on the road with obama for the last -- feels like the last three months, particularly the last couple of weeks where it was kind of like on the -- felt like the baton death march or something like that. and this one moment that just stays in my mind, we're all so prepared for this thing to go possibly into recounts, be up all night. understand when you guys called the

on the presidential election. it is official. president barack obama can claim victory in florida. the state finally finished counting all the votes today and declared president obama the winner. florida election officials say the president carried 50% of the vote to mitt romney's 49.1%. a difference of about 74,000 votes. the president, of course, had enough electoral votes to win re-election on tuesday without florida. but moving florida into the blue column now increases the president's electoral vote to 332 compared to romney's 236. president obama's inauguration is two months away now. four years ago, it was the most widely attended ever. this time around, there may not be as many people but some are hoping to still cash in. sue marry stone has the latest. >> exciting. >> amy london plans to respect her one-bedroom apartment just three blocks from the white house for as much as $5,000 during inauguration weekend. >> i happen to share it because i will be somewhere else and still there for the excitement. >> 1.8 million people attended the excitement during the president's historic inauguration
phenomenal work. tuesday's election brought us not just a second term for president obama but a new congress as well. there are two ways to look at the make up of the congress. one is the endorsement of the status quo. asking the two to work together as house speaker john boehner put it the day after the election. >> the american people have spoken. they reelected president obama. they have again reelected a republican majority in the house of representatives. if there's a mandate in yesterday's results, it's a mandate for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges we all face as a nation. >> the other way to interpret the results is to see them as a resounding liberal governance. a larger and apparently more democratic majority in the senate. it's how harry reid framed the results. >> we had an overwhelming re-election of the president. we picked up seats in the senate and the house. it's not the status quo. >> one thing is clear. it will not look like any congress we have ever had. the most stunning exacten is the diminishing number of white men in house of repres
cliff. >> which is occasioned by the election of president obama. >> no it isn't. the markets would have gone down regardless. >> i don't agree with that at all. >> you hear mort? >> absolutely not. there is real concern over obama's leadership for the economy and good reason for that, given what's happened. but this fiscal cliff, as they say, is essentially a suicide packet, intended to force the congress to deal with it. it is not a rational way of getting the deficit under control. and the question is will obama and the republicans in the house be able to reach an agreement? there is a lot of doubt. they are all going to make the right rhetoric. they are sounding better, we'll see what happens. there is no trust between them. that is a big, big problem. >> i think the republicans will fight to hold the 35% but they are going to do what mitt romney recommended, cap deductions and exemptions and things like that. but they better get a deal. >> i i want a judgment on this before we leave. exit question. will there be a grand compromise between obama and the republicans to avoid the fisc

it came about after obama, president obama's election. it was the first time. i just don't understand why we all can't get together. i know that america is based on individuality and people wanting to have a piece of the pie, but why -- it just appears that the tea party is so divisive, and i don't understand that. you know, sometimes it appears that since president obama has become president, that i've never seen so much disrespect for the office of president. oip amy kremer? guest: well, thanks for your comment, shelly, and i would to say we're not divisive. i mean, we've gone after republicans and democrats alike. we are an issues-oriented movement, focused on fiscal responsibility, limited government, free markets. that's all we're focused on. and as i said before, we want washington to live within their means. so, you know, it's not that we're here just to challenge the democrats. it,e here, and we've done we've primaried republicans before. so i don't think that expecting our federal government and our state and local governments to live within their means is very divisive. i think
people. >> reporter: president obama had already won re-election without this state's prized 29 electoral votes. >> president obama didn't need to carry the state but the fact that two political armies of democrats and republicans fully mobilized and have a difference of only 74,000 votes tells you how competitive our politics will be for years to come. republicans will have to raise their game though in a state that once was theirs. >> reporter: while florida didn't delay the nation like it did in 2000 with its hanging chads, the state again had problems. one big complaint, florida governor rick scott would not extend early voting from eight days to the usual 14. the governor here, popular with the tea party, told reporters, what i'm trying to do is improve the way government works. i believe in efficiency. florida voters who were in line up to seven hours on election day say the entire process is embarrassing. >> they don't call it flori-duh for nothing. >> it can't be this hard. if the rest of the country can do it, why can't we do it? >> reporter: the other problem in florida is the b

to whrak the rich just like he always did. >> first of all, delighted that president obama won re-election, and we know how difficult it was given the fragile economy that we have here in amera, but i believe he wants to accomplish two things. one, he wants to generate revenue, ad goo portion of which goes to pay down the debt, and he wants to grow the economy putting america back to work. you know, in california, the governor had 12.5% unemployment. taking office, downto 10.2%, a few more stop looking, so it's 11%, one out of eight california nans not works. you don't have people believing in the american dream if they don't have something to do. i think what the president wants to do is create growth, generate revenues for the people -- neil: i know what he wants to do. sorry, i was not clear. i know what he wants to do, but wondering whether what he proposed today was something th could be flexible? in other words, yes, he wants to raises taxes on the rich. that's going to happen, but maybe the olive branch he's offering bk to the branch that boehner offered him is that it needn't be an
the guy you want to this election, the obama.g for some people might have called that a lot dance. -- a lapap dance. [laughter] that is extremely disturbing. i do not want that image in my mind. he will be quarantined for a couple of months. i agree with mark. obama ran a brilliant campaign. he did not have a record. and he succeeded. he did extremely well. and he is right. i would say mitt romney is a good and decent man and who -- good have made a president. he was not a good campaigner. theink k heas weakened by republican primaries, weakened by the 47%, and in thend he had really bad luck. a week before the elecon he theahead in just about all polls by a lot -- >> no. >> i think it was pre-empted in the last week. i am not sure he w would have w. but it would havave been closer. nina? >> i do not think he was ahead.. but when we leleftft here last mark and i looked at eachh otr r and we said, now we ll see whetherer theaunted ground game is really t their.. -- really tre. the vavaunted ground game turned out to be a mega groundnd game. one e person i know, this obama operative
of the then president-elect obama gave was about his win was a culmination of struggle. he told the narrative of 106-year-old ann nixon cooper who cast her ballot in atlanta that evening. >> she was born just a general ration past slavery, a time when there were no cars on the road or planes in the sky. when someone like her couldn't vote for two reasons. because she was a woman and because of the color of her skin. and tonight i think about all that she's seen throughout her century in america. the heartache and the hope. the struggle and the progress. the times we with told that we can't and the people who pressed on with that american creed, yes, we can. >> so in 2008, the president saw his own election as fulfilling a legacy of struggle. but the story he told in 2012 was not a story of culmination, it was a story of initialation. not what was but what is and will be. >> i saw just the other day in ohio where a father told the story of his 8-year-old daughter whose long battle with leukemia nearly cost their family everything. had it not been for health care reform passing just a few months befor
. barack obama was re-elected president in part due to his support of reproductive right and his push for health of insurance companies to cover contraceptive coverage. passed many maine, maryland, and the state of washington, measures were passed. cnn.com's religion editor is joining me right now. dan, good to see you. what do these rilts teesults te about the christian right moving forward? >> i think it raises major questions about the politics. mostly when it pertains to guy marriage. i mean, if you could remember where we were eight years ago this week in the 2004 election, the christian right had helped usher george w. bush back into a second term partly by passing 11 ballot initiatives banning guy marriage. many have since then adopted guy marriage bans amending their constitutions and this week we saw the undoing or at least maybe a changing of the tide in that with three states for the first time adopting guy marriage legalization through voters going to the polls. and so what we saw this week was a lot of christian right leaders, some serious evangelical heavyweights saying
and damaged dozens of surrounding homes. >>> president obama's re-election victory just got a bit bigger. florida now in the president's column by a nose. state officials say the president took 50% of the vote compared to 49% from mitt romney. the results mean the president took eight out of nine swing states, losing only north carolina. the final electoral college results now read president obama 332, romney 206. >>> coming up at 8:00 abc's " this" "examines the election. what president obama did right and what the republicans need to do and what both have to do to avoid falling off the so-called fiscal cliff. that's coming up on abc7. >>> we are learning more this morning about the scandal involving david petraeus. his sudden resignation at head of the cia is still sending shockwaves through washington. petreas said he accepts all the blame. >>> after nearly four decades in international affairs, it was an extramarital affairs that brought david petraeus' distinguished career to a jolting end. in a statement to employees he acknowledged the liaison, expressing his extremely poor judgme
on twitter. we did a post on election night of people demanding obama's assassination, which maybe somebody might say it in a bar, and now you say it, the secret service may offer you a visit. >> the learning curve or what is it they think will happen? there's a lack of filter and it extends to politics too. here's an exchange, eric for romney, tweeting david axelrod. he says, david axelrod says romney living in hash tag madman time warp, he writes back, no, when russia was our greatest foe and etch a sketch was a toy not a political strategy. this is political warfare on twitter. >> i love that. it's fun to see that play out in public in a way where we're seeing the same thing that readers are seeing and it's a fluid engagement. >> wt is the -- from different parts of view. there's a journalistic piece of this and political piece and a political polarization piece. what does it do to our politics and how -- and how polarized we've become as a country when we have this as a backdrop for conversation? >> one of the really strange things, i think you can blame it not only on twitter and cable
the outcome of the election, but president obama is the winner in florida. four days after the election, almost 100% of the votes have been counted. the florida secretary of state's office says the president has about 74,000 votes more than mitt romney. and that's about 50% of the florida vote. to romney's 49.1%. so that means the president won eight of the nine swing states. romney only took one. north carolina. the final electoral vote tally? 332 for president obama, 206 for romney. >>> well, now that the election is over, both the president and the republicans addressed the issue of the so-called fiscal cliff. spending cuts and tax increases that will be triggered if it's not resolved by the end of the year. >> we can't just cut our way to prosperity. if we're serious about reducing the deficit, we have to combine spending cuts with revenue. and that means asking the wealthiest americans to pay a little more in taxes. that's how we did it when bill clinton was president and that's only way we can afford to invest in education and job training and manufacturing all the ingredients of
. >> president obama's re-election is a devastating blow. but it's not a decisive defeat. we are in a war. we're in a war to save this nation. and abandoning our post will condemn it to a future of managed decline. to win this war we must remain committed to fighting president obama's agenda. we'll work with our friends in congress to remain true to our conservative principles. in 2014 there will be 20 senate liberals up for re-election. a strong, constitutionally conservative senate is critical to this fight. and in 2016, with a deep bench of committed conservatives, let's choose a nominee who can best articulate our shared conservative values. >> you and i have a rendezvous with destiny. if we lose freedom here there's no place to escape. this is the last stand on earth. >> this is issued the day after the election of 2012. it's a declaration of war to win the election of 2014 and 2016. what does that augur? what does that portend for getting things done? >> well, i've got to say, i think that after the 2004 election there were a lot of folks on the political left who were very dispirited b
's election. according to exit polls, president obama won a slight majority of catholic voters overall, thanks largely to strong support from latino catholics. mitt romney won the white catholic vote by an almost 20-point margin. almost 80% of evangelicals who voted voted for romney. black protestants went overwhelmingly for obama, as did the vast majority of jews. but the biggest share of obama's faith coalition was voters who say they aren't affiliated with any religion. steve schneck was co-chair of catholics for obama. he says while issues like abortion, religious liberty and gay marriage were important, in the end, it was the economy that tipped the scale for the president. >> all of these religious issues, while they are important to religious voters, i think, even among religious voters, they ranked these issues a little further down on the spectrum. >> ralph reed of the faith and freedom coalition admitted that a massive mobilization among religious conservatives wasn't enough to offset the number of women, young people and minorities who voted democratic. >> i think we need to do a be
. one of the problems was that he spent all of this election, the only thing barack obama campaigned on, really, for a second term agenda was his vow to raise taxes on the wealthy. so, now we come back, the day after the election, the white house has already come out and said we're not negotiating on that principle at all. and boehner said we're not negotiating on that principle at all so we're going to find out in the next two weeks whether or not there's any room here or if ins a repeat of the debt limit talks in 2011. >> speaking of that, i don't think that boehner wants a repeat of that. there was a sense last year that he got out a little ahead of the caucus and obama was able to exploit that, negotiating within the negotiating. this time i think he's making sure they present a united front and he said he's open to some increase revenue and i hope he holds on the rates, i don't think we need marginal rates increase ins this economy. he wants to negotiate and cut a deal and i think that obama will be inclined to play ball. >> paul: this is the thing. if you look at second terms are
was wrong to in calling the election for president obama. the number crunchers said, no, you are wrong. he made a fool of himself. still today he insists he is right. i would hope that nobody would give that guy a dollar to spend in any future election. i think his career in politics should be over. not that i feel strongly about this, but he also has this enormous conflict of interest. he is getting all of these people's money, spending it for mitt romney, then he is on fox news as a supposedly independent political commentator and is writing a column for "the wall street journal." there are so many conflicts there is a pleasure mind. host: and on the lecture circuit. guest: which, by the way, i am on that too. he has all kinds of things. his losing record is what points out that his time in american politics has come and gone. host: what is next for the political parties and the president? our guest is bill press. he concludes with these words -- there is a boundary to what luster accomplishes. the road he zoomed down in 2012 was toward a diminished place in his own party. guest:karl rov
after the election. obama did not want to be embarrassed by the disclosure that he appointed petraeus had so much bad judgment he sent more than a thousand e-mails to the woman after she broke up with him trying to get her back. that is it certainly harassment and it conflicts with store stores in the press that she was a bad person and that she sent threatening letters and e-mails to the cia and that's how the investigation came about. that is not true. and the next store store that broke the fact that the fbi was on this, said that it started in a strange way, the fbi came across e-mails on his military e-mail account in which he referred to doing something under the desk and there a misinterpation that that meant corruption and manage going onurped the table and it meant sex. >> i think we can probably figure out what it meant and you mentioned a fact that there thousands of e-mails and details we didn't know. you hit on manage congressman peter king and head of the house of the homeland security committee. how could the white house not know about all of this. listen to this and ge
on the the republican side. what support are they going to be able to provide for president obama and what he is going to be able to do? guest: it was an extraordinary election. six months ago, it was predicted that the republicans were going to take the senate because the democrats with sending so many seats. the democrats' won 25 of the 33 senate elections. -- the democrats won 25 of the 33 senate elections. they want and all of the country. it is a victory that goes with president obama's victory. it was an affirmation of some good senate democratic candidates, but a rejection of republican extremism and obstruction. i want to emphasize the obstruction. the senate has always been a difficult place to make work. filibusters have always been in the atmosphere and a potential threat. and he is to be that the obstructionists were a few individuals. the leaders used to work to try to make the senate do the nation's business. these last four years, we had obstruction as a strategy of the republican party, led by senator mcconnell. if this election can be read as a the fsa -- a rejection of the polar ice
